I have been trying to eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day. I really like to snack on carrots, celery, and cherry tomatoes. When I saw this recipe I thought it would taste great with fresh veggies. Not to mention, it’s packed full of fiber. I added about a cup of cooked black eyed peas to this recipe, and it turned out great. I loved this, it reminds me alot of hummus. I almost bought a small tub of hummus at the grocery store today, but I stopped when I saw the price. I made this for under $2. If you’re looking for a healthy snack, try this!
